1990 was the year when Eden Park Champagne came into its own in the eyes of the media.
Thanks to the Championship of France Rugby – and the final where Franck Mesnel, Eric Blanc and Jean Baptists Lafond, among others were playing – which the five founders of the brand were attending, the impact on the world of wine was as strong as a Rugby scrum. Wearing the popular Pap Rose around their necks, the Rugby players marked this important event with pride, and so did the founders of Eden Park.
Yvon Rousset, one of a few not playing the game on this day, was enjoying a glass of Eden Park Champagne Brut at the time, too. When a reporter from the media questioned him on why he was drinking this prestigious bubbly so early in the game, he made a comment about the quality of the Champagne which the reporter didn't anticipate, and asked the reporter Why Wait until the traditional time to drink?
It goes without saying, then, that all who open this bottle should anticipate an element of greatness, whether they are at a sporting event or merely conducting a private dinner party! Ever since that point in time, the Champagne Brut Eden Park has been known as one of firm quality and reputation.
A special bubbly which is the discerning combination of the three major Champagne grape varieties, it's a 60% Pinot Black / 35% Chardonnay / 10% aged in wood and 5% Pinot Meunier treat that presents in a shiny, golden brown dress, along with an array of finest bubbles. The palate is also one of extravagance; citrus and gooseberry flavours float along with the blissful addition of garrigue and rosemary. In the end, it all makes for a suitably stylish Champagne that is always full of finesse and great for celebrations.
